Irish Quilt Inspiration

Today's Inspiration Challenge IC118 on SCS was this Double Irish Chain Shamrock Quilt.

I took the diamond pattern from this quilt to create this card. I used PTI's Borders and Corners Monogram Edition for the diamond shape. Placement was so easy to do because of the clear stamp! The rest of the stamps are Studio G $1 stamps from ACMoore! The larger shamrocks don't get very good coverage like the better quality acrylic stamps, but for $1, they worked just fine. The tiny shamrocks around the border are from the same line. There are about eight of them in a line, and I just stamped them for the border. They really worked out wonderfully. The card needed something, and I remembered these shamrock jewels I purchased at JoAnn's. There is a shamrock on the horseshoe, so I put one there and two near the sentiment. (Are there too many shamrocks on this card? Can there ever be enough for St. Patty's Day? Hmmm...) This literally took 10 minutes to make and maybe 5 minutes to decide which stamps to use (I have about three sets of these St. Patty's $1 stamps). I think I'm going to send this to my friend in Ohio whose last name is O'Donnell. I think that's appropriate! Happy St. Patty's day and may the luck of the Irish be with you!
